There will be a deluxe, limited edition (and very expensive) version of this book from Taschen...

http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Lawrence-S...ldescription-20

Full description for Lawrence Schiller, Marilyn & Me: A Memoir in Words and Pictures

"You're already famous, now you're going to make me famous," photographer Lawrence Schiller said to Marilyn Monroe as they discussed the photos he was about to shoot of her. "Don't be so cocky," Marilyn teased, "photographers can be easily replaced." The year was 1962, and Schiller, 24, was on assignment for Paris Match. He knew Marilyn already - they had formed a bond two years earlier when they met on the set of "Let's Make Love" - but nothing could have prepared him for the day she agreed to appear in the nude for his camera during the swimming pool scene in "Something's Got to Give". Her chronic lateness and absence soon got her fired from the film, but the worldwide publicity the photographs garnered - her first nudes since the calendar she posed for as a young starlet - guaranteed she would be hired back. But this victory was truly a pyrrhic one: two weeks later, she was dead. "Marilyn & Me" is an intimate tale of a legend before her fall and a young photographer on his way to the top. Via words and pictures, Schiller takes us back to that time, and to the surprising connection that allowed a star of her stature to open up to a kid from Brooklyn with a lot of ambition but very little experience. Onset, backstage, in her dressing room, at her house, in her car, they made pictures, made deals, and talked and talked, quite intimately at times. When Schiller asked her if she always wanted to be Marilyn Monroe, she answered candidly, "I never wanted to be her - it just happened. Marilyn's like a veil I wear over Norma Jeane." Fifty years later, TASCHEN releases this limited Collector's edition of Lawrence Schiller's "Marilyn & Me", signed by the photographer and individually numbered. A unique addition to the lore of Marilyn Monroe, Schiller's is a story that has never been told before, and he tells it with tact, humor, and compassion. It is a story brought to life by the photographs he took - from those headline-grabbing nudes to the almost surreal pictures from the day of her funeral, the tragedy of her death hanging heavy in every frame. And if Schiller isn't already famous from his work as a photographer, director, producer, and writer, this book will surely change that.

It's not confirmed, but I've heard that the cheaper version of this book has no photos, just text. I hope that's not true because I certainly can't afford the boxed edition... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

I hope it's not true, because I won't buy the expensive version and I don't think I'll buy the cheaper version either if it has no photos.

I agree Paju. It makes no sense to me to have a photographer's book without pictures. Great if you can afford the deluxe version, but I'm getting rather fed up with this kind of publication that is just not viable for most of us. Anyway, if I get any further details I'll post them here.

It's like the Norman Mailer / Bert Stern: Marilyn Monroe book
http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/?showtopic=16675
but Taschen always publish a more approachable version a few years later... so let's hope!

Yeah I cancelled my preorder on amazon as I noticed it said it was only 128 pages and had only 18 photos, seems a bit sad really, but with so many new books coming out I will wait to see what others think when it comes out

Only 18 photos? Thank you for letting us know. I'm thinking of cancelling my pre-order but I'm not sure yet. Like Eric says, maybe Taschen will bring out a cheaper photo book later as they did with De Dienes. It's probably worth waiting out as so far, I think this is all a bit unfair to the average fan...

Yeah I was shocked by that myself, it was only added to the description on amazon uk last week. As soon as I saw it I cancelled. I just think with all the books coming out this year there will be better ones than this one now. It is a shame that this large expensive version seems to becoming more common with Marilyn photo books, just glad I've been collecting so long I have a decent collection already, for someone starting out it is not a nice book market recently with greed making some Marilyn books unreachable for most of us.

I decided to cancel my pre-order for the time being, and on the very same day I found a bargain used copy of Stern's Complete Last Sitting in a charity shop! So it's always worth waiting for good things to come your way...
